Food was good but not particularly diet friendly. Lost one star because of the dirty bathroom. But overall a wonderful evening and fantastic service!

Booked for two before the Oiler's game and gave ourselves 1 1/2 hrs just in case. Good thing, because that's what it took. Granted that there were a couple of large tables, but two other tables ordered after us and were served before us. The one guy behind us was served in less than 15 minutes, so the kitchen is busy doesn't cut it. At least the food was hot when it did arrive.

I love there food here! The fish and chips is so delicious and are a good portion size for the money spent. I do not suggest relying on there website for closing times and details about the venue. The reason is that the site says it opens till 1am Friday however the server rushed me and friends out at 1130pm. The server told us they are closing and said it was based on business levels. Also no live band was playing as indicated on website as they must have trivia night instead and didn’t update the website.

Took 90 minutes for our party to get our food. We were a party of 17 that had made reservations. They brought the first persons food out 10 minites before anyone else's. The others slowly trickled out. The last person never did get the order before we had to leave. Everyone's salad was wilted and bitter. They did apologoze and give us 50% off each of our bills but I won't go back.

Our sincere apologies for your experience LisaP. I know you were on a tight timeline with Teachers Convention and we should have been more ready for the extremely busy day. We had hundreds of people to please that day and unfortunately with your group, we let you down. Next time you are in town for teacher's convention, if you want to give us a second chance, I would be glad to make that happen! Regards, Mat

Went there for the Justin Timberlake concert, we had just missed happy hour. However, there was still drink specials that we had! The food came out hot. Hot n' fast! And we even had time to take in the pubs stumpers before leaving to our concert.
Staff were attentive, and all smiles! Great place!

We went to this restaurant because we were heading to the theatre next door. We were there more than 1.5hrs before our movie and barely made it to the theatre on time.

Service was very, very slow!

AMA had a deal, where when we showed our membership card, we would get a free pot pie dish. Beer was good , ambiance nice, reasonably quiet so we could visit. Pot pies were better than average, but price was certainly right. Went to a movie after, so a nice night out.

Nice Irish-style pub in downtown Edmonton (City Centre West mall). Good drink specials, wonderful if you are headed to an Oiler's game or concert at nearby Roger's Place.

Food - steak sandwich was good, but plate was loaded with rubbery broccolini and leathery fries. The salmon dish came overcooked and the replacement was passable.

Great service; good food. One of my table mates did not care for the fish tacos; bit dry; so the waitress reduced her bill by 20%. Appreciate the great customer service and will come again.

Handy location for a bite and beverage before heading to the hockey game. Their server was very polite and attentive. The food was decent pub food. They had a live singer on Friday night at 5:00 to add to the atmosphere.

The food was good and the service was great but there was a incident when a rude customer was giving the waiter a hard time .i was a little shocked the waiter went off on the customer and made a scene in the restaurant.could have been handled better and had to hear the waiter boosting about how he went off on the customer. No manager to be found just not well handled. Waiter called for security and should have let them handle it. Waiter made himself and the establishment look pretty bad.will not go back.

We arrived relatively early for dinner because we were at a conference and had to get back for evening events. The restaurant was fine, but seemed to be rather short on staff. Initially there was nobody at all out front, and we nearly left not knowing how to be seated. Once food was ordered the time frame was more reasonable, but the initial delay put us a bit too close for comfort at returning in time for our meetings.

The food was excellent, it seems they did not schedule enough staff for a concert night. Our waiter was overly apologetic as regrettably he took 4 or 5 tables orders and submitted all at once! The bartender and the kitchen were both angry with him and because of this he kept coming and apologizing which did eventually get annoying! More staff and better training would have made the experience more enjoyable. The food was excellent except my fish taco was stone cold. When I told our server he simply apologized and did not offer to get me a hot one or remove it from my bill.

We always need to modify our order due to dietary needs and the server/kitchen got it perfect! Our order was quick which is nice since we only had 1 hour for lunch. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Reservation was perfect. Seated right away and attended to quickly. Was fairly busy . Took way to long to get our food. At least it was warm. Pricing was a little high.

Stop in for dinner before the Oilers game April 7 and all I can say is that service was so slow.

Waitress only took the food order from only one of our group, only after one of our group finished there drink did she come back to check on the table, at this point the rest of the group was finally able to order. She advised us that the first order of food should be out right away. The first order of food didn't arrive for another 15 mins, chicken wings and fries arrived cold.
The rest of the food that was ordered didn't even get to the table until over an hour after we had been seated.
The restaurant wasn't very busy considering that this was less an hour before the start of the Oilers game.
The manager did apologize for the how long it took for the food to come out and wasn't able to explain why it took so long.
Three in our group never did eat here before having to leave for the game and even one of the plates never arrive at the table.

Went on the night during an event at Rogers Place so a reservation was a great idea. Slow service but very busy so somewhat understandable. Food presentation was so so. Didn't feel like we got the value for money.
